Background

Telephoto is a 20th Century style grotesque with a soft, analog feeling. Class-based kerning is included as well as lining numerals, old-style numerals and 116 custom letter pairs to create a more natural, analog look. The letter pairs or autoligs are automatically substituted in applications that support OpenType ligatures. As you type, the custom pairs are automatically substituted. The overall result is lettering that looks imprecise, like old-fashioned phototypesetting.
